Dear Mr. O'Mara:

My experience as a rail yard engineer with S & L Railroad qualifies me to apply for the position you posted on JobBankUSA.com. I'm interested in re-locating to Anyplace so when I saw your need for experienced rail yard engineers, I was compelled to contact you.

I have driven small engines and large within industrial plants, mines and quarries, and on some construction sites. If we can meet in person, I'd be happy to expand on these duties and show you how I can apply them to your railroad.

If you wish to meet to discuss this job, please phone me at 695-888-8756 and I'll arrange to come to your office at your convenience any weekday afternoon. Thank you for considering my cover letter.
